First Lessons Dulcimer

Have you recently acquired a lap dulcimer, and now want to know what to do with it?   It’s not too hard to learn: there are a lot of helpful books, DVDs and CDs available!

Joyce Ochs has written a helpful method book for the dulcimer in DAD tuning.  First Lessons Dulcimer  includes a CD that will help you tune your dulcimer and what the songs are supposed to sound like. All the basics are here. Basic chords and strums are taught, and beginning melody picking is introduced.

When you are comfortable with your dulcimer,  Stanton’s has a selection of more dulcimer books to choose from. There are dulcimer hymns and books of folk songs for dulcimer.  For more dulcimer music, call us at 1-800-42-MUSIC, email us at, or visit our website at  Shop Stanton’s for all your sheet music needs!
